I have used pro V1 and HX tour so far, but I am tired of paying too much to buy this ball, and this ball is too much spin. Recently, I had a chance to use NXT-tour (old model) and e-6, and it is pretty good and has enough spin. Especially, I could get more distance by e-6 compared to pro V1. So, I have a plan to change my favorite ball from V1, HX-tour to less-spin ball. I don' have many experiences about less-spin ball.  

Can you recommend less-spin ball with ~ $ 10 - 20 ? Used ball is also fine, but I prefer to buy new ball.

x2 on the D2 Feel, I also like the Callway Big Bertha for a lower spinning ball.

Top Flite D2 Feel...$15.95 for 15.

Best bang for the buck IMO.  My friend turned me on to them.  I have been playing them for about 2 months and love them!

I'm waiting to try the new Top Flite Gamer released this month MSRP $20 per doz.

I'm sure its shocking for a lot of people to type "top-flite" but the fact is the D2 feel is a super good ball. I'm also looking forward to trying the Gamer, but why argue with performance at 16 bucks for 15?

The e6 is also quite good. (Havent tried the e6+).

I have heard wonderful things about the D2 Feel as well. I am a ProV1X guy but might give them a try in the near future just to see what all the hype is about...Wal-Mart carries them for less than 15 dollars for 15...Good luck...

At $15/15 balls the D2 is the best deal in golf.  At that price, I have a hard time paying for my beloved Srixons at $40/dozen.  The D2's spin enough to hold all but the hardest of greens and feel pretty soft off the putter.  Not as good as any of the Tour balls, but at 1/3 the price, its a great ball for almost any situation and they are very durable.

Alot of people dont realize that TopFlite is owned by Callaway now... Quick story from a couple of months ago. My buddy runs a golf shop in Hilton Head. The Cally rep comes in and tells him to play this new proto-type ball.. They came in a blank sleeve and only had numbers on them.... He told me before the round he was going to play a new Cally proto-type ball.. All day he hit long drives and hit a few shots out of  the bunker where the ball bit and actually spun back a bit.. He looked at me and said "these balls are the s**t" We got back to the club house and had a beer. We started telling all the guys how these new "HX Tour" proto balls were... Best ball he had ever played... He called me a couple of days later when the Callaway rep came back in the shop. The rep asked how he liked the balls and my buddie said "them are the best Callaway HX Tours I have ever played"... The rep laughed and said Steve" Those were the proto types for the new "TOP-FLITE GAMER" Thought it was quite funny but a Top Flite is not really a Top Flite if you know what i mean......

Srixon AD333 is a great ball, retail is usually $19.99.
